At the Pond

To beat the heat this weekend we took Henry to a nearby State Park after church on Sunday. We went with his grandparents. At the park they have a little beach that's at the edge of a pine forest. It's a really nice spot. We went early and didn't stay that long, but Henry had plenty of time in the water and got a chance to explore the woods a bit. He did really well in the pond. He was really brave and walked in pretty far while holding Meg's hand. He really liked being carried about and being spun around by her. We can't wait to go back there.

Otherwise it was a pretty low key, but cranky weekend for us. Henry said quite a few new words, "kitty" and "train" are two I remember. His words and letters are coming pretty quickly these days.

I did well with my coin searching.

25 small dollars didn't produce anything.

8,000 half dollars yielded nineteen 90% silver halves (1943, 1952D, 1958D, 1962, 1963, 14 x 1964), forty-three 40% silver halves (1965, 7 x 1966, 12 x 1967, 18 x 1968D, 5 x 1969D), three proofs (1883S, 1985S, 1986S) and six mint set halves (2002P, 2003D, 2004D, 2 x 2005P, 2005D). I still need the 1984S proof half, getting those three 80's proof halves is about as close as one can get ... or so it seemed.

1,000 quarters had nothing.

840 nickels turned up one Canadian, one UK 20 pence (1983), one US dime and a nice clipped nickel.

10,450 pennies rounded up seventy Wheats, eighty-one Canadians, eighteen US dimes, two UK pennies (1984, 1996), one Dominican Republic 1 Centavo, one Bermuda 1¢ and one Barbados 1¢. The Wheats were:

1918, 1934, 1935, 1941(4), 1942(2), 1943, 1944(9), 1944D, 1945(2), 1946(5), 1946D, 1946S, 1947(2), 1948(3), 1949(2), 1950S, 1951D(3), 1952D, 1953(2), 1953D(3), 1955(3), 1956(3), 1956D(4), 1957(4), 1957D(5), 1958(3), 1958D(3)

Found: 1 penny (at the State Park)
